The Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill Green Benefit District formed in July 2015 for a 10 year period. Both the Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill neighborhoods feature a diverse array of historic residences, industrial warehouses, live-work lofts and commercial businesses.
For decades, residents toiled to transform vacant lots and excess public lands into verdant, productive gardens and green spaces. As formerly industrial and vacant properties are redeveloped into new residences and offices, neighborhood groups and community stewards initiated the formation of San Francisco’s first Green Benefit District, aiming to improve the quality of life for those who live, work and visit the area.
Beginning Fiscal Year 2015-16, the Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill Green Benefit District will collect approximately $500,000 to fund the following services:
Trash removal and graffiti abatement
Capital improvements to public realm areas
Marketing and communications
For additional information, refer to the Green Benefit District Management Plan, Section V. Services, Activities, and Improvements of the Green Benefit District.
The District spans two zones: Zone 1 includes the Dogpatch neighborhood; Zone 2 includes portions of the northwest Potrero Hill.
